After discovering six gold Roman coins buried in the mud of the Devil's Dyke, Barnabas Sackett enthusiastically invests in goods that he will offer for trade in America. But Sackett has a powerful enemy: Rupert Genester, nephew of an earl, wants him dead. A battlefield promise made to Sackett's father threatens Genester's inheritance. So on the eve of his departure for America, Sackett is attacked and thrown into the hold of a pirate ship. Genester's orders are for him to disappear into the waters of the Atlantic. But after managing to escape, Sackett makes his way to the Carolina coast. He sees in the raw, abundant land the promise of a bright future. But before that dream can be realized, he must first return to England and discover the secret of his father's legacy.

Some "think" Louis L'amour was just a great western writer. Sackett's Land is the first book in a series that spans almost 300 years. Barnabas Sackett started from England in the 1600's. Really, this is a historical novel. What makes this book so good is that it has the right mix of adventure, romance and historical significance. We thought this series was so good we added this audio book (in particular) and other Sackett Series books to our library. (click on "videos" tab to SEE VIDEO REVIEW)

“I would not wait for some vague tomorrow, nor for something to happen. One could wait a lifetime, and find nothing at the end of waiting. I would begin here, I would make something happen.”
